Louie’s Hungry Five - Pgm 307, October 7, 1931

March 11th, 2017

Now another episode in our twenty-show run of the early radio serial, “Louie’s Hungry Five”, syndicated by WGN and the Tribune Company in Chicago.  You can find out more background on the series in my first post about the show.

Program 307 was originally heard October 7, 1931.  The guys have sold all of their furniture so they can go on their trip to South America and haven’t made arrangements to leave town, so they have to sleep on the floor until their lease runs out.  The group rebels against Louie and get a hotel room.  You can download a jpeg of the original local announcer’s cue sheet for the program here.

Our show was transferred directly from two twelve-inch shellac 78 rpm transcriptions, pressed by Columbia’s Sound-on-Disc division, matrix numbers 233267 and 233268.
